Optically active silica nanoparticles, with a 70-nm diameter, grafted with (P)-1,12-dimethyl-8-methoxycarbonylbenzo[c]phenanthrene-5-carboxyamide were synthesized, and their use in the kinetic resolution of aromatic alcohols was examined. Up to 61% ee for (S)-2,2-dimethyl-1-phenyl-1-propanol was obtained by a preferential precipitation of aggregates formed with (P)-nanoparticles.
